Lentil Love

I'm a VeganMoFo 2009 Dropout. I know it.

I just can't justify spending time at the computer some days. A few days were super beautiful and we had to spend every second we could outside since we've already had unseasonably cold and rainy weather most of the month. The beautiful days are precious and fleeting. The rest of the time, I feel like I should be washing dishes or fixing something. Not only have I not beenblogging, but we've been cooking super simple, quick meals. Yummy, but blogged about before. One of the foods I've been making a lot is soup. Lentil soups, specifically. Creamy lentil soups so that means lots of red lentils. Mmmmm! We love lentils! Tonight I had a little two much two year old help and not enough adult help so I threw this together:Silky Lentil and Sweet Potato Soup and Easy Peanut Sauce Over Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Peas and Broccoli

The Silky Lentil and Sweet Potato Soup is from Vegan Feast Kitchen and the Easy Peanut Sauce was a tester recipe from Robin Robertson's latest cookbook (I can't wait to buy it as soon as things stop breaking around the house!). The peanut sauce is already a favorite and the soup is a new fave. Dema is in a mood lately where he turns his nose up at everything just to drive me insane. He will say he doesn't like everything, even as he devours it or even if it is something he asked for. He is extremely contrary so we try to ignore his comments. Tonight he was much better and ate the entire bowl of soup with much lip smacking before he said he didn't like it. Dema and Josie had frozen pomegranate kernels with their meal. Another hit with Dema and he ate most of the bag before he said they were "okay". Silly boy!

That soup hit the spot last night.

Lentil love, indeed. Thanks for pointing me in the direction of this soup recipe, made it, and loved it!
